"There are several good benefits of ocean.

Some of these are the following:

1. The air we breathe: The ocean produces over half of the world's oxygen and absorbs 50 times more carbon dioxide than our atmosphere.

2. Climate regulation: Covering 70 percent of the Earth's surface, the ocean transports heat from the equator to the poles, regulating our climate and weather patterns.

3. Transportation: Seventy-six percent of all U.S. trade involves some form of marine transportation.

4. Recreation: From fishing to boating to kayaking and whale watching, the ocean provides us with many unique activities.

5. Economic benefits: The U.S. ocean economy produces $282 billion in goods and services and ocean-dependant businesses employ almost three million people."
